DULWICH SOCIETY ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING - 24 April 2017
EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE REPORTS for the year 2016
The branch in West Dulwich was listed on 100 branches to be closed thus year. It is programmed to close in September.
Early in the morning of 6 April thieves on a moped smashed one of the shop windows to steal cigarettes. The shop was robbed only a few weeks ago and the front door was still boarded up.
There is still no confirmation of an opening date. There have been further delays on the handover of the base building and we now expect the pub to re-open sometime in June. The continuing delays reflect very badly on the Dulwich Estate.
Following some delay by Southwark Council, the planning application for the proposed new almshouses in the current school playground has now been officially registered. The planning reference is 17/AP/0118
A large number of people attended the official opening of the new Exodus Travels Pavilion on 30th Marc. A public launch will follow in the summer. Both the current MP, Helen Hayes, hand her predecessor, Dame Tessa Jowell were there there, along with Val Shawcross from the GLA.
At the last Dulwich Community Council meeting on 25 March the Council announced that they would be consulting on another new designated cycle route from Barry Road and Lordship Lane down Woodwarde Road to meet the proposed Quietway 7 running down Calton Avenue into Dulwich Village. Work on Quietway 7 is due to start in the summer.
Royal Mail is consulting on plans to close the sorting offices in West Norwood and East Dulwich and move collection of undelivered letters and parcels to Anerley or Peckham. This is very unsatisfactory for residents who use the existing offices.
